Executive level CCG membership of both St Helens Safeguarding Children and Adult Boards which ensures that safeguarding is at the forefront of service planning.
Senior CCG membership on the Peoples Board.
Ensuring that providers of services are held to account through regular review of safeguarding arrangements through quality scrutiny processes.
Designated Nurses in post to offer professional expertise and advice regarding safeguarding matters.
